SUMA Reiterating Call for Change to Municipal Election Date

Oct 20, 2022

With the release of Saskatchewan Chief Electoral Officer Michael Boda’s final report on the 2020 provincial election, SUMA is once again calling for a change to the municipal election date for Saskatchewan’s cities, towns, and villages.

“Saskatchewan’s Chief Electoral Officer has reiterated that more space should be created between municipal and provincial elections, and we could not agree more,” SUMA President Randy Goulden said. “In 2020, our hometowns experienced voter confusion with the provincial and municipal election dates so close together, and inclement weather also created challenges. As the order of government closest to the people, it is vital for Saskatchewan's residents to be able to exercise their democratic right and vote in their local election.”
